“Our pavement materials are tested and certified to the Dept TMR Quarry Registration System. They are designed and blended to maximise compaction for base and sub-base construction of roads, civil and site projects”.
Cordwells Resources strive to provide quality, cost-efficiency, and reliability in all we do, and our aggregates and sand are no exception. Cordwells Resources is a aggregates and sand producer. We supplying aggregates, sand to the landscape, general public and civil construction workplaces for over 50 years.
We just don’t supply concrete aggregates and sands to the civil construction industry. We also have a wide variety of very good fill as well as blended road base materials.
Major Roadworks, Dams, Buildings
The fills fit many of the main roads MRTS04 table specifications and have been used on major roadworks, dams, building blocks and many other general fill requirements. The fill is not just popular for its strength values and Atterberg properties, it is excavated out of the ground only a couple of percent below its optimum moisture content and this plays a big part in it achieving its specified compaction.

Cordwell’s Resource is an independent family owned company based on the Sunshine Coast that supplies a range of ready mixed concrete aggregates, sands, drainage aggregates, roadbase and landscaping products based on client requirements.
The Kin Kin Quarry was approved by the Council in 1987, and the validity of that approval was defended by the Council in 2010-2011 in the Planning and Environment Court against a challenge by the Kin Kin Community Group. The Council then approved the current Quarry Management Plan (QMP) in 2016, pursuant to which the Kin Kin Quarry operates.
Cordwell’s Resource now operates the Kin Kin Quarry in accordance with that development approval and QMP. The operation of the Kin Kin Quarry is strictly regulated and supervised by the Council, the Department of Resources and the Department of Environment and Science.
Local people are employed by Cordwell’s Resources and the resource provided is used for essential building and roadwork projects in the Sunshine Coast area.
Cordwell’s Resource is aware of some community concern regarding the presence of quarry trucks on the road in certain areas and at certain times. It is also aware of the support by other members of the community for the Kin Kin Quarry and the essential service provided.
What Cordwell’s Resource seeks to achieve is an acceptance that truck movements are an inescapable and legitimate part of the business and provided the QMP and other aspects of the development approval are complied with, then the roads need to be shared to enable this essential resource to be supplied to the community from within the community – otherwise there will be more trucks on the road travelling longer distances from quarry materials sourced from further afield.
The request by the Council in an open letter to the media to stop trucks during school bus times and significantly reduce truck movements to a more manageable level is not in accordance with the development approval and is an unreasonable request to make of Cordwell’s Resources. The Council has not made such a request to any other business, nor to the construction and essential roadwork projects which utilise the resource.
Cordwell’s Resource is a local company, has a local base and wishes to work with the community to provide the essential service required by all of the community.
We also have a rocky clean fill available, Crusher Dust and other products. Give us a call for a full Product list.
